Eminent Esquire Looks to Extend Streak


Since being claimed by co-owner/trainer Paul Jones on March 12, Eminent Esquire has been unbeatable.

The Idaho-bred gelding has won three in succession for Jones and Oscar Ramirez since being taken for $3,200 and he’ll try to win an allowance race tonight at Los Alamitos.

The race, at 350 yards, goes as the eighth on the card and carries a purse of $12,550.

In his first for Jones, Eminent Esquire beat $4,000 claimers, won a starter allowance nearly a month later, then continued his streak with a two-length vic- tory over $10,000 claimers on May 16.


The picks: 1. Classic Tolltec. 2. Ms Jolly. 3. Like My Pa. 4. Natural Balance. 5. Royaltys Prince. 6. Sunnybgood. 7. Mimi Cartel. 8. Eminent Esquire. 9. Start The Commotion. 10. Cheatin Game.

Four! Mimi Cartel in the seventh, Corona Captain and Eminent Esquire in the eighth, Start The Commotion, Tequila La Jolla and the Kingman Kin entry in the ninth and Cheatin Game, Count On Tag and Hey Dale in the 10th.

Shots in the dark: Dun Deal is making his debut for trainer Dean Frey in the second. Arliss steps up a level in the fifth after having been claimed by trainer Jesus Nunez.
